Build your game portfolio and start your career in gaming
Futuregames preparatory courses provide the ideal way to help you begin studying games development at top international games development schools, and jump start your career journey in the games industry. It consists of 3 weeks of intensive study with individual mentoring and feedback on your game (design) portfolio and help in putting together work samples for application.
We offer our preparatory course to get started on your gaming resume in the following three areas:
- Games Artists
- Games Designers
- Games Programmers
The preparatory course for the respective area will provide you with:
- An overview of the industry and career advice.
- Instruction in the most useful tools & platforms for games development.
- One-on-one and group feedback to help you create a game portfolio, gaming resume or work sample needed to apply to Futuregames or other games development schools.
Tips before starting the course
A great game portfolio, gaming resume, or work sample isn’t built in a day. Before the start of the preparatory course, it’s a good idea to have an idea of what you want to do for your work sample. It can be a new idea, or improving on something you have worked on previously.
Be realistic! Create a plan for yourself and break down the task you need to finish with clear deadlines. Prioritize the different tasks, what are the things you must have and what are the nice-to-haves. That way you can scale down if you realise you are running out of time.
Avoid copying without investigating and reflecting to make your work your own.
Make your work relevant for the education you are interested in applying to. If you are interested in applying for more than one educations, work smart and see if you can create a work sample suitable for all the educations.
The portfolio course is suitable for applicants to Futuregames higher vocational game development educations.

Tips innan kursstart
Great portfolios aren’t built in a day. Before the start of the portfolio course, it is beneficial to have an idea of what you want to do for your work sample. It can be a new idea or improving on something you have worked on previously.
Push yourself but be realistic. Create a plan for yourself and break down the task you need to finish with clear deadlines. Prioritize the different tasks, what are the priorities you must have and what are the nice-to-haves. That way you can scale down if you realise you are running out of time.
If you learn from different resources, do make sure that you understand what you are doing, avoid copying something without investigating it and reflecting upon it.
Make it relevant for the education you are interested in applying to. If you are interested in multiple educations work smart and see if you can create a work sample suitable for the educations.
